Welcome to the Porter County Assessor’s Website!
I hope that you will find the information on this site useful. Our staff is always working hard to serve the assessing needs of Porter County. I am glad that we could issue our Form 11-Notice of Assessments to the taxpayers in a timely manner again this year. Our staff is ready to offer their personal assistance with taxpayer’s concerns. Taxpayers may notice a change in their property’s total assessed value due to the update in our records for any changes in property structures or the initiatives taken due to the state’s land order since the completion of our reassessment last year. This could cause a substantial increase or decrease in assessed value at one time. This change was not targeted to one area but was countywide. Notice of Assessments were mailed on September 20, 2013. You may contact the office if you did not receive a notice, which may have occurred due to a recent sale of the property. There is a 45 day window for appeals that will open upon the date of the notice. If you feel that your assessment is incorrect, please either click on the “Appeal” button at the side navigation window of this site or download the 130 Short Form. To better serve you, we also have special assistance available for walk-in services regarding your assessment during our normal business hours.
Our Mission Statement
"The Porter County Assessor’s Office, as a professional team, exists to put our taxpayers first by providing helpful, timely service, maintain equitable market value assessments and serve as an informational resource to the community."
I hope that your experience with this office is a reflection of the above statement.
